Lords' Brexit wreckers have had their day

Lords' Brexit wreckers have had their day

The House of Lords’ wrecking amendment to sabotage the will of the people and reverse the results of the referendum and the general election, in which 85% of votes cast were for parties who in their manifestos were committed to Brexit, will not be tolerated.

The Lords have finally accepted the vast majority of the Government’s amendments tabled last week, and their stubbornness to continue to demand a meaningful vote, will I’m sure, be overturned when the Bill goes back to the House of Commons.

Led by a man who used public money to clean out the moat of his country house, the peers have broken the convention, which stems from the 1911 Parliament Act, not to go against the elected Government’s manifesto. They had better watch their backs as the clamour for reform and their abolition is likely to grow.
